I was raised in a suburb of Chicago and went to college at Winona State University in Minnesota. Soon after earning my BA in the Graphic Arts, I moved to Colorado. After living in Colorado for a few years, I heard my calling to teach. I began my teaching/coaching career at Loveland Ski Area instructing snowboarding. Shortly after, I earned my teaching certificate from Metro State. While student teaching 3rd grade in Adams 12, I also coached varisty softball in the district.
I spent my first two years teaching 5th grade science and social studies in Colorado Springs. Teaching two subjects allowed time for detailed and fun experiments! I am incredibly excited to intergrate science and social studies into the curriculum here at Stellar. I currently have my Professional License in K-6 education and an endorsement in Special Education.
